Abstract

Water supply is an important part of the local community resources for fire fighting. The time to establish a water supply for fire fighting and the maximum delivery quantity and pressure are important decisions that a community must make. These decisions are influenced by economics, planning, the exposure and attack needs, national standards and local regulations. This project describes these factors and evaluates an office park in Auburn, Massachusetts.
